La problemática del poder de reforma constitucional en Brasil: clausulas pétreas, control judicial de enmiendas constitucionales y principio democráticot

Abstract:
The present paper proposes an analysis of the constitutional reform power established under the CF 1988 and the main questions concerning its design. Its procedural dynamic show some aspects so rel- evant than demands a short descriptive analysis. The second part it is focused on the issues as the results of the incorporation of undeniable legal limits to the action of the constituent legislator —the well- known as in exible clauses put on the article 60, § 4.o CF— for the dialectical tension between the constitutionalism and the democratic principle. The wide extension of the legal categories included in that constitutional dispositive, besides with a possible extensive inter- pretation provided by the analytical condition of the CF, bring with itself a high risk of constitutional stagnation. This article ends with a critical analyses about the real possibilities of judicial review over the constitutional amendments in the light of the article 60, § 4.o CF. We defend a self restraint attitude focus on the undeniable violations of the essential contain of the in exible clauses that results compat- ible with the contra majority dif culty.
